We all love our Akorn Kamado. It's probably best bang for your buck in the sea of Kamado grills. But have you ever wondered what it is like to convert it into a pellet grill to take the advantage of both world? A well-insulated grill equipped with automatic fire start and temperature control? Plus the advantage of wide choice of wood pellets and cleaner burn.
Well, we put one to test by adapting a pellet grill sender unit onto our Akorn grill. The result was AMAZING! It performed flawlessly with steady temperature, though some pellet feeding rate needs to be adjusted. The grill maintained 250 degrees for nearly 6 hours and the smoked ribs were juicey and flavorful.
We are making production prototypes as of now and will update when we have more stories to tell. So come back in a couple of weeks and we should have a new post with the new product!
